This textbook is intended for students of the Hebrew language, whether self-taught or studying at an Ulpan. The most difficult part in the Hebrew language acquisition is the verb. This textbook contains 2834 verbs out of which 840 are presented in Tables of Conjugations. There are two approaches applied in the book:
- every commonly used verb is presented in a separate table
- verbs are grouped according to their grammatical classification. Unlike in other similar publications here the student will find the exact conjugational paradigm for each of the 840 commonly used verbs presented, as well as the rest of verbs, using the example of the verb conjugation.
This textbook contains the following:
Hebrew-English Dictionary in which the verbs are presented in past tense, 3rd person, singular, masculine, arranged alphabetically and numbered (each verb is given its own ordinal number). Infinitive form and prepositions governing and the verb's root are listed as well (except the preposition ??). Every shaded verb is presented in a relevant conjugational table.
Index of Verb Roots which contains 1414 roots listed alphabetically, producing 2834 verbs. The number appearing in the cell is the ordinal number of the relevant verb in the Hebrew-English Dictionary. This index enables the user to quickly and easily determine in which binyanim a given root may be conjugated.
Tables of Conjugations which contain the most commonly used verbs as well as verbs that represent groups of conjugation. Every table contains, in addition to all the verb forms (with transcription), number of table, verb root, translation of the verb into English, name of the relevant binyan, verbal nouns (if any), with transcription and English translation.
Tables of Preposition Declension English-Hebrew Index with translation of every English verb into Hebrew, number of table, the verb's ordinal number in the Hebrew-English dictionary. The present textbook may serve as a reference book and/or a dictionary with whose help one can easily and precisely use practically any verb.
